The beauty of the extensive upgrade to the southern side of the Torrens River Linear Park has been negatively impacted by the installation of signposts along the path between Lwr Portrush Rd and the Felixstowe Reserve.  

The detrimental impact of the signage comes from two types of signs:

1) Signposts that inform pedestrians and cyclists that the path is intended for pedestrians and cyclists.  These signs are A) redundant to the painted signage on the bitumen walkway, usually at the same location as the signpost and B) unnecessary, since users already know that (it has been this way for decades). These signs seem to be placed every 100 metres, as if to assume we’d forgotten the message from the last time we saw the sign a few minutes earlier (and the ones before that). .

2) The large, bright yellow traffic signs that advise that the “Path Narrows”. These signs are starkly high-visibility, in contrast to the field of greens, browns and greys of the woodlands. These signs are designed for roads travelled by people moving at high rates of speed (e.g., 50 kms/hr), to encourage them to take care as they approach change of conditions. This signage is A) Inappropriate since the traffic along the pathway, being limited to pedestrians and cyclists, and does not warrant signage intended for automobiles, and. B) visually disruptive of the beauty of the environment.

We ask the NPSP Council to consider a compromise that meets the assumed requirement for public safety in a way that does not mar the amenity of the Park: Limit signage to painted messages on the bitumen path
